      Why are armored personnel carriers being tested in the Pacific Fleet? The tests would be much more effective and with great effect on the Baltic, near Latvia-Lithuania-Estonia-Poland or on the Black Sea, near Ukraine and Romania. Probably, to put it mildly, NATO was embarrassed?

      And what about the Pacific Fleet have any features that can interfere with the operation of the BTR-82A, different from the Baltic or the Black Sea or the North? What nonsense in the very formulation of the question. It is necessary to hike, first test the Mercedes in Primorye or Kamchatka, and only then start selling it in the region, otherwise suddenly the dirt there is not that or the drivers are not suitable for driving it. laughing

    And who knows what motor is being put there now.
    And even on the overview photo, I didn’t see anything new except the kondeya and the new combat module.
    Judging by the fact that the test of new driving characteristics, then the campaign and the engine and chassis have undergone some changes.
